Did you know that 99% of vanilla fragrances and flavors are actually artificial? (Patricia Rain)
A true Vanilla Bean
A flavoring derived from a type of orchid, called the flat-leaved vanilla plant, or V. planifoli., the vanilla plant itself is a climbing vine, with small and yellow-green flowers. After blooming, it lasted only one day before wilting. While the flower is open, it can be pollinated, and then will produce one fruit—the long, green vanilla bean pod.
Native to Mexico, vanilla was originally cultivated by the Totonac Indians and later, by the Aztecs. When Hernando Cortez defeated the Aztecs, he took the vanilla beans back to Europe. In the early 1800s, the French started to grow the plant on tropical islands like Mauritius, Madagascar, Reunion and Comoros Islands. Today, Madagascar is the largest producer of vanilla beans in the world, follow by Indonesia, Tahiti, Mexico, and India.
